I'll see ya in the smoke.
I think that YA should have been added to the description, I stopped reading in frustration over and over until I gave up halfway through the second download. Let me just say Ditto and Thanks to the following reviewers, Flipangle, JA Scaevola, Anne, Bryon, and Peter. And to Ryan I say unfollow.
Daniel Suarez writes a masterful tale of mystery and horror through the use of modern technology. He keeps you on the edge your seat throughout the entire read. At the end, you want nothing more than to toss all your technology into the trash and walk off into the woods to live a simpler, if not a safer life.
I am a woman who absolutely adored this book. It was not at all what I thought it would be. I picked it because it had some settings in Houston and it was about computers- both of which I love. And then I got sucked into the good writing, the good storytelling, the good narrator and it turned out to be addicting. What a good book and what a good idea for the storyline.!!
Truly enjoyed the futuristic view of the society. Totally plausible and believable in 2015. Returned for second "listen" of the 3-book series. Hope Daniel Suarez is busy working on the next trilogy.
Really enjoyed. I'm a 46 yo, father of 4. Loved the story. I have recommended it to friends and biz associates with no disappointments.
Great story, great voice and diction.
Society is full of problems and it seems like few people are doing anything about them. I read this book and feel a sense of longing to be part of the society the Deamon is spawning. The murders are horrible but the change is important.
Daniel Suarez's Daemon attempts to be relevant to our changing technological landscape, but he does so by pushing over the top with techno babble that often feels out of place within the confines of his world. Misogynistic undertones plagued the book, which makes me wonder if Daniel Suarez spends the majority of his time on 4chan.
The first book I couldn't finish in a long time.
